Lockport Locks & Erie Canal Cruises
Hours of Operation
Check website for regularly scheduled cruise times available daily.
One of the best places to learn about the historic Erie Canal! Experience a unique two-hour cruise which includes "locking through" and being raised the 49-foot elevation of the Niagara Escarpment (the same one that creates Niagara Falls) in the only double set of locks on the Erie Canal. You will pass under bridges that raise straight up, see water cascade over Lockport's famous "Flight of Five" 1840's locks, and travel through the solid walls of the "rock cut" as your Coast Guard-licensed captain describes the architecture, sights, and folklore along the way.
